I think it went well

I have returned from my inter­view at Creighton (hel­lo Creighton peo­ple!) and I am pret­ty hap­py. Despite Aidan throw­ing up in the car while Tiffany took him to day­care. I feel awful about that. But hap­py about my inter­view. For AT peo­ple: it’s a small group, much small­er than AT, but they do much the […]

I got an interview!

Hey, good news on the work front. I have been asked to inter­view at Creighton for the Instruc­tion­al Design job I applied for. My inter­view is next week, and I am pret­ty excit­ed about it. I hope I do well, and I (nat­u­ral­ly) hope i get the job. I have a lot of expe­ri­ence doing […]

Fantasimania

Since her per­for­mance on Wednes­day, Fan­tasi­a’s ren­di­tion of Sum­mer­time has got­ten a lot of notice. Three blog­gers I fre­quent admit­ted that they watch Amer­i­can Idol by way of prais­ing her. Now I’m look­ing for a video ver­sion of her per­for­mance. We’ll see if the Inter­net deliv­ers.

Give that girl a contract [updated]

First off, yes, I watch Amer­i­can Idol and like it. It is the quin­tes­sen­tial guilty plea­sure. But enough about me. Last night, one of the con­tes­tants, Fan­ta­sia Bar­ri­no, sang Gersh­win’s Sum­mer­time and it was amaz­ing. After the show (after watch­ing her sing it twice, thanks to the won­ders of TiVo) we went down­stairs and lis­tened […]

Applied for my old job last week

Sounds odd, and it feels odd, too. I did­n’t apply for my old job, exact­ly. I applied for a job that sounds exact­ly like my old job when I applied for it. I dropped off my cov­er let­ter and resume to Creighton Uni­ver­si­ty for a job as an Instruc­tion­al Design­er with their Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy group, […]

Under the Tuscan Sun

A sur­pris­ing­ly delight­ful movie, Under the Tus­can Sun. I’ve had a thing for Diane Lane since see­ing her in Jack, on some air­plane trip. But then I saw half of her crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed per­for­mance in Unfaith­ful and could­n’t real­ly stand her. Not sure why. And it turned me off of her. I kept think­ing that […]

Something’s Gotta Give

We rent­ed Some­thing’s Got­ta Give a cou­ple of weeks back, with very low expec­ta­tions. For some rea­son, all through Oscar Sea­son, nei­ther Tiffany nor I could get up the inter­est to watch it. Anoth­er Jack show. Diane Keaton nev­er has rung my bell. Aman­da Peet real­ly does­n’t do any­thing for me. Sure, lots of folks […]
